2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Sportstime in W-S. Pours a dark brownish red color with a small light tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma is a dark brown sugar malty nose. It has a little bitterness, but the flavor brings a strong metallic flavor at the beginning. Once you get past that, there is some roasted coffee malt flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Very watery. Not terrible, but probably won’t search this out again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wife brought this back from Greensboro. I love my wife. Pours a deep brown with purple tint color with a really thin off white head. Roasted malt flavor and hop bitterness. Candi sugar and caramel aroma. Leaves a faint sweetness on the backside. Long finish and full bodied. Very interesting brown ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma is very nutty, hints of toast and baking chocolate are noted. This is a pretty straight up brown ale. Nice and nutty, not overly sweet, It’s toasty all around and the finish is doughy. There is a strange, almost vegetal aspect towards the finish. This may have been my least favorite out of the Natty Greene’s bottled lineup.

Among this brewery’s uninteresting bottled beers with goofy names, this one is actually the best. Totally good brown ale worth the buy.

Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a medium brown color with a small dissipating head. Aroma is that of a typical brown ale with a small note of dark chocolate. Flavor is about the same, creamy, with coffee and bitter chocolate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Incredibly dark brown, tettering towards black in the right light. Tan head slow to dissipate. Full aroma of chocolate and nutmeg, creamy and strong taste. Flowed so well I didn’t want to stop drinking. Great with a meal.
